Life is about creating Yourself – Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,

Today I’m up on Dusty Attic blog with a new mixed media canvas inspired by the color combo of July. 

Here is the amazing July color combo from Prussian blue to green avocado.

I primed the canvas with white gesso. Next, I added a design with a stencil and plaster paste. 

While the background was drying, I primed the chipboards with white gesso too. I primed some bird skulls with black gesso. Next, I glued all the elements with 3D matte gel. 

When done, I colored the different chipboards with different paints and colors: the Feathers with the Prussian Blue Liquid Acrylic, the Foliage #3 and the Tropical Foliage #7 with the Avocado Liquid Acrylic, the Feathers by Nuneka with the blue turquoise acrylic paint, the Decorative Frame #2 with a blue turquoise acrylic paint and the Linen Impasto.

I recovered the bird skulls with silver metallic flakes. To lessen the shine of the metallic flakes a little, I used the Charcoal matte wax. I waxed also the foliage chipboards with white gold and the rest with white pearl.

To finish, I added some glitters.
